Skokie Officers Help Save Life

On the evening of Tuesday, January 20, Police Officers Bello, Zurawski, S. Long and Communications Operator Lieberman worked as a team to deliver life saving instructions, administer CPR and deploy an automated external defibrillator (AED), to successfully resuscitate an unresponsive subject.

This is the first AED deployment since SPD purchased 17 of the units in 2013 and 2014, for deployment in Patrol Kits. The Patrol Kits are carried in squad cars on every shift and all SPD officers are certified in the American Heart Association CPR/AED Program.

The Skokie Police Department purchased 17 AED's with funding provided through the Byrne Justice Assistance Grant Program administered by the United States Department of Justice and the Chicago Police Department Research and Development Division.
